There's something magical that happens around this time of year when the holiday season is in full swing.

People all over are breaking out their fluffy blankets and settling down on the couch beside the Christmas tree, equipped with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book. Holiday carols are playing on repeat, evening drives come with a free serotonin boost from the twinkly lights illuminating the night sky, and stores are bustling with shoppers getting gifts for their loved ones.

As you're out and about doing some shopping of your own, it's inevitable that you'll soon get hungry. If you're looking to keep the festive holiday spirit alive while dining out, you should absolutely check out this Weymouth, Massachusetts, restaurant which has transformed itself into a beautiful seasonal extravaganza.

It's called The Venetian, and you have to see it to believe it.

The landmark Italian restaurant is ordinarily known for offering family favorite dishes like pizza, pasta, seafood, and more. But during the holidays, they take things up a notch.

How gorgeous is this? We're honestly speechless.

The restaurant's website describes their "holiday pop-up" as a new tradition, and this year's decor will remain up until January 31, 2024. Those who dine in the midst of this extravagant, family-friendly display are in for quite a treat:

Grab a table at The Venetian this holiday season and cozy up under the lights as you sip a tasty holiday-inspired cocktail and enjoy a 360* installation of lush greenery, nearly 6,000 ornaments, lights and beyond - designed in partnership with local South Shore Florist, Beach Plum Floral Design.

Talk about an unbelievable dining experience. But wait, there's more.
